I ran across this today. Don't have it yet, seemed pretty interesting.

They call it the worlds most realistic astronomy software, it allows you to see the sky from anywhere on earth, or lift off and visit any solar system body up to 20,000 light years away!

You can view 2,500,000 stars along with 40,000 deep space objects.

Explore without limits 700 million light years of space and much more!


If you're really hard core, they have a pro version for $149.95

Here's a free program I came across a while back. Definitely not as nice as the one above, but hey... its free!

Celestia

I played around with this for a bit, and its interesting, though the graphics aren't "stellar" and its not as great of a teaching/learning tool.
